about this item

Contributors to this book include scholars in comparative literature, literary theory, cultural theory, science studies, posthumanism, cultural studies, science and literature, and media studies; while many are science writers, some contributors are creative arts practitioners in photography, video, installation, acoustic ecology, and ecopoetics. They explore science writing and creative practice in traditional and new media. Part 1 examines literature by Clarice Lispector, Octavia Butler, Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari, J. G. Ballard, Richard Powers, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Christoph Ransmayr, Franz Kafka, and Haruki Murakami. Works analyzed include The Flame Alphabet, Teknolust, Orfeo, and &’A&gua viva. Part 2 looks at topics in science writing, such as humans, apes, and temporality in scientific and literary narratives. Many of the essays originated from papers given at the June 2014 SLSAeu (Life, in Theory) convention in Turin. The book includes color photos throughout, many from photo series projects.
